Kasautii Zindagi Kay 2

Kasauti Zindagi Kay 2 Review

Its hard to admit, but I will. I am watching Kasautii Zindagi Kay 2. And when I wanted to read about it online I found a bunch of articles pre-launch but less post-launch. So 3 months or so in I want to discuss with you how is it going? Well am still watching, and while I could blame it entirely on nothing else catching my interest, it’s not entirely true. So here goes the number game.. The hero. Parth Samthaan as…

What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim

Korean dramas are the cutest and what’s wrong with secretary Kim is a perfect example of a Korean drama. I loved the first half. The main lead is played to perfection by Park Seo Joon and the side characters are hilarious. The heroine played by Park Min Young is beautiful but her character was at times too formal and less touched by the hero’s overflowing attentions. The 2nd half got cringy sweet and predictable for my liking, but if you want…

Lady In Waiting

Lady in Waiting is Marie Tremayne’s debut novel. I was pleasantly happy reading it. Imagine Downtown Abbey as written by Julia Quinn. 1 scarred (on the inside) angtsy brooding lonely Lord – check 1 semi-radical sort-of-wallflower – check 1 vile widower with disturbing taste in bedroom activities who is ready to marry the wallflower – check 1 reluctant bride – check 1 hidden identity – check instant attraction as Lord Ashworth saves a damsel in distress – double check the warmth in his…

I’m Not a Robot

i am not a robot review

Here is the verdict – If you haven’t watched Korean dramas yet, you are missing out on the simple pleasures of life. I’m not a Robot is heartwarming, fun and full of love. Major spoiler – It’s not really sci-fi. It took me a couple of episodes to warm up to Kim Min Kyu, our hero. Kim Min Kyu is rich and lonely. Literally lonely, since he suffers from a rare allergy. An allergy to people. He cannot come in physical…

Why is Beyhadh worth a Watch?

Why is Beyhadh worth a Watch?

Sony Television’s new show Beyhadh gets better with each episode. The promos promised a show about a poor little rich girl who is obsessed over a guy. Not a Meera Bai kind of selfless devotion (that I personally love), but apparently a more evil kind of fixation in which a death or two is of no consequence. Turns out I love this latter kind of wild craziness as well. Maya Mehrotra is a nuanced well thought out character that Jennifer Winget manages to…

Ek Rishta Sajhedari ka

Ek RIshta Sajhedari Ka Review

When I heard there is a show by Sooraj Barjatiya production I had to watch. I used to love his grand big joint family sagas full of weddings, songs and dances.  All the teachings around the perfect home with a Ram like son… I used to think some of that inherent goodness is bound to seep in somewhere in me, even if in all other things am full of reality. In fact, I still tease my best friend, who laughed at me when I…

Dark Clouds

dark clouds phil rowan book review

It is fun to pick up a book from an author you haven’t read before, and get amply rewarded with a a good story. Dark Clouds, by author Phil Rowan, was a chance find. If you like a terrorist chase and not too much heroics, then this book might be for you. Dark Clouds follows journalist, Rudi Flynn, as he manages his sagging career and the demands of being an unwilling spy for his government. He is an American on…

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

J. R. R. Tolkein had named the book There and Back Again. Peter Jackson chose the name Battle of Five Armies because it made more sense in context of the finale of a three part movies series. Though, Hobbit for me won’t reach the hallows of a classic, the last few minutes came pretty close. I recollect enjoying the book The Hobbit more than the small print thick tomes of Lord of the Rings. Nevertheless, I am a diehard fan of the…
